  • My Camera Came without PC Camera functions


    I have a camera whose model is xtrax selfie "https://www.xtrax.com.br/camera-de-acao-xtrax-selfie" I really need the camera's pc function, but this function has been disabled, I researched and found goprawn, but as my language is Portuguese and both English and translators are mediocre, I can't even update the firmware or activate the function, will you can you help me?

      you can look in the Allwinner forums/threads https://www.goprawn.com/forum/allwinner-cams and find a compatible firmware. The Sensor, Sensor modules (drivers) and LCD all should be the same. But maybe any firmware using imx179s sensor and st7789v LCD will be okay. Follow this tutorial video, start at TIME 13:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrTxFjIiHvc&t=830 and do NOT use ADB operations.

      more FW info:
      Code:
      Sensor:
         OV8838
      Sensor modules (drivers):
         imx179s_8
      Logo:
         people's faces
      Wifi:
         xradio
      Power on/off logo


      "PC Camera" option when USB is plugged in to a computer or tablet.

        Yes, I believe that the fake 'imx179s_8.ko' sensor driver can be replaced, but I think more changes will be needed to make it work.

        USB webcams / pc cams on ebay, aliexpress and other sites may be around $20 to $30 USD, and they should produce better video than a cheap Allwinner action camera. let me know if you want help to find it.

      Could you do that for me ? I imagine I don't have the necessary knowledge for that

        I guess the sdv binary should be also changed or adjusted.

      I also tried copying the whole sdv file but it didn't work, the same error occurred, maybe editing something inside it works but I don't know what to edit
